This book is very poorly written. The book's timeline is confusing and her story is disjointed. Pun intended. I think the writers, Pattie Boyd and Penny Junor, were using the same substances that Pattie, George and Eric used in previous decades. The only good things about this book are the photos and the gossip.

While it was an interesting read, it was difficult to follow. The beginning while talking about her childhood, showed emotion and you could feel for her. After that she just rambles on, throws out so many names and places that it is hard to keep track of where you are in the book. A lot about George Harrison and Eric Clapton seemed to be written without emotion. I did not know that Bell Bottom Blues was also written for her. She speaks of how Clapton handed her a pair of bell bottoms and told her he wrote the song for her... then just goes into something else. Just no emotion there at all. Holy cow.. If someone like George Harrison or Eric Clapton wrote a song for me, I would be gushing over how this made me feel. There were a lot of good insights in this book, but she jumped around so much half the time I had no idea what she was talking about and had to go back and forth to follow.

Pattie Boyd's memoir is full of famous names, places, and events, but there is so much that is lacking. There is a disjointed nature to her writing; she includes some of the oddest details which add nothing to the overall story. Her life choices boggle the mind. She repeatedly puts up with drug abuse and infidelities by George Harrison and Eric Clapton. After witnessing the effects of heroin on Eric and her sister, Pattie impulsively decides to try some of her sister's stash in the airport bathroom before their flight, a trip that had been planned as a means of weaning her sister off heroin. For a woman who inspired three of the greatest love songs ever written (Something, Wonderful Tonight, and Layla), Pattie comes off as quite vacuous.

My favorite all time musicians: George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Pattie Boyd was married to both. So obviously, I absolutely loved this book. What a fascinating life she lead with them and since she was with them. So fun to read. Great photos too.
